LOS ANGELES – The NBA season is slowly approaching and that means a new season of wagers is upon sports bettors.

This NBA season will be a major opportunity for sports bettors to play to win big and there are plenty of NBA betting lines at online sportsbooks for NBA followers.

NBA Season Player Props

Betting on the NBA is a great way to play to win big because the league hosts a slew of player props. This gives several betting lines for key All-Stars.

A player like Los Angeles Lakers star big man Anthony Davis for example has betting lines for how many points per game he will average, how many rebounds, and how many blocks he will rake in this season.

  • Under 9½ Rebounds +100

Anthony Davis - Blocks PG 20-21 Reg. Season

Sports bettors being split on Davis’ points per game is understandable as the NBA Champion did lead the team in points last season, but he is primarily known for his defense.

Taking the +100 on Davis averaging over 2 ½ blocks and the +110 on him averaging over 10 ½ rebounds could be the better wager to look towards.

Davis averaged 26.1 points, 9.3 rebounds, and 2.3 blocks per game in the 2019-2020 season.

Davis’ running mate reigning Finals MVP LeBron James also has heavy action being placed on his performance heading into the season. Sports bettors are betting on his stats, but also the number of triple-doubles he will have this season.

LeBron averaged 25.3 points, 10.2 assists, and posted 13 triple-doubles.

  • Under 25½ Points -145
  • Over 25½ Points +115
